Tear gas has been fired and a curfew imposed amid angry protests after police fatally shot a black man in a traffic stop in the US city of Brooklyn Center, just north of Minneapolis.
The man has been identified by relatives as 20-year-old Daunte Wright.
Brooklyn Center’s mayor issued a curfew that lasted until 06:00 (11:00 GMT), telling people to “be safe, go home”.
The National Guard was also deployed in Minneapolis.
Hundreds of protesters chanting Daunte Wright’s name gathered late on Sunday outside the police headquarters in Brooklyn Center.
Tensions rose as police donned riot gear, and two police vehicles were pelted with stones and jumped on, Reuters news agency reported.
Protesters wrote chalk on pavements and lit candles, but police later ordered the protesters to disperse, with footage showing tear gas and stun grenades being fired by officers.
Local media reported some looting taking place in a number of areas and Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott announced on Twitter he was issuing a curfew until 06:00.
It all started when Black Lives Matter members jumped on police cars in the afternoon.

At least one bullet was fired at a police station, shattering the front door but not injuring anyone, police told Kare11.
The National Guard was deployed and arrived just before midnight, the Star Tribune said — with officials announcing that more would be arriving throughout Monday to help quell further violence.
But everything could have been avoided if the mainstream media reported that the mother of Daunte was only asking for peace and that the violence would not bring her son back.

The only video that gained attention by the BLM mob and the MSM was this:

What’s the end look like? Another massive payout from the city for a cop doing his/her job?
